In another lawsuit.
Some black residents of Mississippi are suing their police department for racial harassment.

The group responsible for filing the lawsuit is a civil-rights law firm called JULIAN, who intend to stop law enforcement in Lexington from “threatening, coercing, harassing, assaulting or interfering” with the city’s largely Black population.
JULIAN is also responsible for releasing video of the city’s former Police chief, who was fired for after he boasted in a conversation with a former officer that was secretly recorded, about shooting a Black man more than 100 times.
